like a gun, you put it to your head

Do you ever see the light blinking on your answering machine but just walk away?

I do this all the time. I've done it my whole life.

Sometimes that light blinks for days. Who are you, and what do you want from me? Because I know you want something.

Even the message just saying hi is never really that.

Sometimes I even stop seeing the light after awhile. It's still blinking but I don't notice. Like a flaw in someone's face, it just starts being there.

I think I might be the last generation that is partly repelled by the phone.

I know there are good messages, things about winning or receiving, zipping around the communications stratosphere, but there must be something in my own phone that automatically deletes those.


  1. Maybe you just need a new phone - one without a light that winks at you! I love phones, I made lots of money in the old days *teaching* people how to use their phones. I was constantly surprised at how little people knew about phones!

  2. i have voice mail. no lights. i have to actively seek my messages. ha! like that'll happen. texting. texting is where it's at.
